Steven C. Rubert provides evidence that Africans were not passive in their responses to the penetration of European capitalism into Zimbabwe but, on the contrary, helped to shape both the work and living conditions they encountered as they entered wage employment.Beginning with a brief history of tobacco growing in Zimbabwe, this study focuses on the organization of workers compounds and on the paid and unpaid labor performed by both women and children on those farms.
